Nicholas Winton was responsible for the rescue and safe passage to Britain of 669 Czechoslovakian children destined for the Nazi death camps.
Most of his efforts remained unknown, up until 1988, when Winton’s wife found a scrapbook dating back to 1939 with a complete list of the children’s names and photos.
In a BBC Programme “That’s Life” which aired in 1988, Winton is surprised by a reunion with the children that he rescued.
The last time that Winton saw each person in the room was when they were very young. Can you imagine the emotions he felt seeing each child now as an adult, and knowing he was a part of securing their safety? Amazing!
